In February of 2014 Cody Sorensen was gearing up to compete at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi as part of the number three ranked bobsleigh team in the world. His journey in high-performance international sport began as a collegiate track & field athlete where Cody was the captain of the Guelph varsity track team for 2 years, captured several individual national medals, and led the team to a National  Championship title in 2008. In 2010 he was named Ontario Male athlete of the year.

His story and journey up to and since the Olympic games is one of personal resilience, interpersonal skills development, & passion, that weaves principles of building high-performance teams throughout.

Cody has since been a motivational speaker for students and youth with Motivate Canada, a high-performance teams speaker across Canada through the RBC Olympians program, and has completed a Queen's MBA. He has now transitioned into roles in banking and M&A advisory where he continues to successfully apply personal and team leadership principles in a business environment.
